Could I have HIV from sharing a razor?

I’m 13 y/o, and very paranoid because a few years ago, I used my friends razor, and I think I might have used my aunts at the beach. Idk if either of them are HIV positive, but I have been extremely worried recently.

  • Unless the other person is HIV+ and cuts a huge gash in themselves while shaving, then hands you the razor and you cut a huge gash on yourself and then you vigorously rub your gushing cuts together you can not get HIV that way. Unless the razor thing is a euphemism for unprotected anal sex with ejaculation??

    It’s possible but very unlikely. If a person with HIV cut themself shaving and then you cut yourself with the same razor, you could get infected. But HIV can’t survive long outside the body. Once blood is dry, it can’t give you HIV (but you can get hep C). If you’re really that concerned, get tested. In the future, don’t share razors.

    Highly doubtful. The only conceivable risk would be if the previous user of the razor was HIV positive and cut themselves with it then you also cut yourself with it.  Even then the risks are virtually zero

    You can't catch it from someone who doesn't have it. Pay attention in school.
